|Cinnamon Toast Twisties|
Warning: If you’re a big fan (like me) of all things cinnamon/sugary, if you’re a lady and it’s your time of the month, if you’re depressed or dieting, or just don’t want to gain 10 pounds, then don’t read any further. It’s too late for me, but you can still CLOSE THIS WINDOW! SAVE YOURSELF! This quick and easy snack is simply too delicious not to make over and over.. and over. And you’ll eat the entire pan. 🙂
These delicious, moist on the inside, crispy on the outside snacks are very remniscent to me of a churro. They have the comforting taste of cinnamon toast, and would be the perfect (albeit occastional) after school snack for your kids. They would also be perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower, or party. They took about 10 minutes to prepare, and you probably already have all of the ingredients in your pantry.
Recipe originally from Circle B Kitchen
12 slices of very soft, fresh white bread
1/4 cup (half a stick) melted butter
cinnamon sugar (1/2 C sugar + 1 teaspoon cinnamon)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cut the crusts from a slice of bread and roll until very thin. Spread both sides of the bread with melted butter and then sprinkle one side with the cinnamon sugar, making sure to cover very well.
Fold each side into the middle and then gently roll up and place in a buttered mini muffin tin.
Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon sugar. Alternately, you can fold the bread into a triangle, and then fold into another smaller triangle and place on a parchment-covered baking sheet.
When all of the rolls are made, bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are just starting to turn golden brown and get a little crisp. Remove from the muffin tin to cool slightly before serving.
These freeze really well. To reheat, place briefly in a microwave to thaw and then bake in a low oven (250 or 300 until warm and slightly crisp. Alternately, you can reheat them in foil in the oven.

What a brilliant tasty idea 😛
great idea,do you think it would look nice too if I cut the toast in half and just roll it,ro be bite size.
Andoola: I think that would work just fine with a mini-cupcake pan.
These look really nice. I will definitely be trying them out soon. Your blog is a great find….I'm a big fan of all things chocolate and cinnamon.
Thanks for visiting!

Yes.. the kiddos… That's what I say too. 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
These look so fantastic that the moment I saw them on pinterest, I had my rolling pin in hand and starting rolling the bread! They are in the oven as we speak and I can't wait to try them. Your blog is filled with recipes that I can't wait to try! Jess
I hope you enjoyed them. 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
Gotta try these! bet they would be really good with cream cheese frosting on the side to dip them in =)
Yep, that would probably be just like a cinnamon roll! 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
These look delicious.
Oh my YUM!!!(:Thanks for sharing this!(:
Hope you like them! Thanks for visiting!
Would it be okay to use a regular muffin pan and not a mini?
Hmmm. I don't think that would work very well, they wouldn't twist as tightly. They'd probably taste the same though. I'd watch them because they'll probably cook faster not all rolled up.
drizzle with a lil powder sugar mixed with a bit of milk…
Great idea! Thanks for visiting!
Super! I'll try it!!!! Bye form Tuscani 🙂 Laura
I have done it! Wonderful! I love cinnamon so much! http://www.antroalchimista.com/2012/11/cinnamon-toast-twisties.html
Lauradv: beautiful! so glad you like them, thanks for visiting!
could you do this with something other than white bread?
Any type of sliced soft bread should work. I can't guarantee it will taste as good as Wonder Bread though!
